First Single Everybody’s Pulling On Me Released Today With Pre-order

Canadian Holiday Concert Tour Presently Underway

Arden’s Latest Book, Feeding My Mother, Released This Week

24 NOVEMBER 2017 (Toronto, ON) – Canadian multi-platinum, award-winning singer/songwriter, best-selling author, radio host, actor, activist, and social media star Jann Arden reveals her latest studio album, These Are The Days, scheduled for release March 16 via Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company. These Are The Days is available for pre-order from today along with first single Everybody’s Pulling On Me.

Recorded at Vancouver’s Warehouse studios with legendary producer Bob Rock at the helm, These Are The Days is a defiant statement from an artist at the height of her powers, more self-assured than ever before.

“Occasionally - if the stars align - you get the chance to make the perfect album. And when I say perfect - what feels perfect to yourself as an artist. I have worked with Bob Rock several times but in all those years we have never written a single song together,” admits Arden. “We decided to try it out - we met in Maui, where he lives - and wrote four songs. We got together twice more in Vancouver and wrote another nine. Most of them ended up on this record. I really believe they are the culmination of best of both of us. I feel like it’s my best work in twenty years and I hope you do too.”

These Are The Days was heralded by the September release of the song A Long Goodbye, a poignant reflection on the gradual disappearance of a loved one suffering from dementia-related illness, a theme also central to Arden’s most recent book, Feeding My Mother - Comfort and Laughter in the Kitchen as My Mom Lives with Memory Loss, which is released this week via Penguin Random House Canada. Arden is presently on concert and book tour through December 20, with details below.

Alberta-born and -based Jann Arden arrived on the Canadian music landscape in 1993 with the release of her debut album Time For Mercy featuring the hit single, I Would Die For You.  The following year delivered her career breakout hit Insensitive, from Living Under June, which would catapult Arden to the international stage. She has since released 14 albums, with 19 Top Ten singles, and is recipient of 10 SOCAN awards for songwriting, four Western Canadian Music Awards, a MuchMusic Video Award, three Prairie Music Awards, and an Alberta Recording Industry Award. Arden has hosted Canada’s JUNO Awards broadcast twice, in 1997 and 2016, and has been honoured eight times with their statuettes, including for Songwriter of the Year and Female Artist of the Year.

Jann Arden has a star on Canada’s Walk of Fame and is an inductee of the Canadian Music Industry Hall of Fame, the Canadian Association of Broadcasters Hall of Fame, and the Western Canadian Music Alliance Hall of Fame. She is recipient of the Vantage Women of Originality Award and, in 2012, was awarded the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal. This winter, Arden will add one more accolade to her growing list of accomplishments, when she receives the Bob Edwards Award, named in honour of the late Canadian satirist and humourist.  In doing so she joins the ranks of notables such as Mordecai Richler, Margaret Atwood and W.O. Mitchell.

As an author, Arden’s books include If I Knew, Don’t You Think I’d Tell You and I’ll Tell You One Damn Thing, That’s All I Know, along with her best-selling, self-penned memoir Falling Backwards. She is an in-demand event speaker, peppering her words of wisdom with her signature humour. She hosted Being Jann, her 2010 CBC Radio series, and sat as a judge for Global TV’s Canada Sings. Jann Arden is a regular guest host on CTV’s The Social, is a frequent visitor of The Rick Mercer Report, and has appeared on sitcoms Ellen and Corner Gas, plus Working Moms and The Detour earlier this year. The multi-disciplinary artist has also taken up visual art in form of her paintings and has ‘crept the boards’ in theatre when, in 2000, she took part in The Vagina Monologues during its Canadian tour.

Arden’s philanthropic work has included World Vision, she performed in Live 8, and the MAC Cosmetics Fashion Cares AIDS benefit. In recent years Jann has also supported Gilda’s Club in Toronto. / Twitter / Instagram / Facebook
